I received a note the other day asking me, what’s my biggest struggle?
Note the definition of struggle. “Make forceful or violent efforts to get free of restraint or constriction.”
I don’t see life or business that way. To me, the world is not something to oppose or violently fight against. Nothing and no one is restraining or constricting me.
It’s not that my life is without challenge. It is full of it, like anyone else. Though challenge as defined as “a task or situation that tests someone’s abilities, a call to take part in a contest or competition,” is what makes me grow. Yes, I do sometimes get cranky, feel sorry for myself, or blame myself or others for a time, only to remember, hopefully in short order, who I am.
My aim then is to engage life and my business pursuits like a game, though with serious desire to align with my greatest abilities, strengthen those that aren’t as developed, and play with my challenges with a sense of possibility, knowing that in the long run, everything will work out just fine.
